The future is looking bright for Ryman Division One (North) side Heybridge Swifts as they look to move away from their Scraley Road home to a new stadium in the town which is detailed in the article below reproduced courtesy of their club website.
Announcement from Chairman Nick BowyerI am very pleased to be able to announce on behalf of the Committee and Trustees, that our long term plan to relocate and upgrade the Swifts facilities is now entering a decisive phase. This current plan started back in 2011 when members overwhelmingly backed the proposal to enter into an agreement with a national house builder to develop our current ground and move us to a new site nearby.
In the intervening period the house builder has changed and many problems have had to be overcome, but the project has remained the same.
Last year we entered into an agreement with Bloor Homes and the owner of the proposed new site, subject to planning permission being obtained for both and we are now close to submitting the applications.
An exhibition of the proposals for both sites will be held on Tuesday 24th March at the Swifts clubhouse.
This will start for the public and members at 2.00pm through to 6.00pm and again from 8.00pm till 9.00pm for any members that can’t get along earlier. I hope as many of you as possible can attend, however for those who can’t, the plans will be available to view after that via a link on our website.
This is very exciting prospect for us and will give us vastly improved facilities to secure our long term future.
